The design of this enclosure took into account many elements. Of most importance was the safety of visitors, staff & animals whilst recreating the Macaques natural habitat. The existing site was tight and sensitive with animals located nearby as well as protected vegetation on the site. The final product was a structure which afforded a familiar habitat for the Macaques, safe observation for visitors & a structure which created minimal impact to the existing animals & function of the zoo. We were also able to incorporate the native vegetation into the design by creating a structure around these plants/trees.
